I just had a great weekend. My adult-bought Seemani molted for the first time since I've had it and I was finally able to confirm that she's a girl. Also, my B. smithi sling (butt the size of a cherry) I've had for 2 months molted and it's a girl, too. My GBB (butt the size of a #2 pencil eraser) is still too small to sex. On top of that, I got a new T. blondi sling (about the same size as the smithi, but all legs) at the reptile show. It's the most aggressive eater I've ever seen. It snatched up 2 crickets instantly. The first was a tiny one that it finished up in no time so I threw in a chirper and it took all of 3 seconds to chomp it up. What is this monster going to be like in a year? I love my spiders to be good eaters.
